About Arcade Games

Originally, Arcade games were amusement park games, like shooting galleries, ball toss, and early coin operated machines that played music or predicted one's fortune. These provided inspiration for arcades of the future. In 1971, Nolan Bushnell together with Ted Dabney, created the very first Arcade Game, named 'Computer Space.' A year later, they formed a company named Atari, which pioneered the coin operated video game industry, with its smash hit electronic video game named Ping Pong. Video game arcades gradually sprang up in shopping malls, and small spaces dedicated to games known as 'corner arcades.' The period between late 1970s and early 1980s saw the growth in popularity of games such as Space Invaders, Pac-Man, Donkey Kong and Tapper. By the mid-1980s, the arcade video games witnessed a drop in interest, due to unsafe location of these arcade zones, as well as the progression in home video game consoles. With the advent of two-player fighting games, such as Street Fighter II, Capcorn, Mortal Kombat and many more, the arcade gaming industry revived its status. Virtua Fighter introduced quick 3D polygon graphics into arcade games for the first time. Games today have come a long way from what its predecessors looked or functioned like. Arcades today are back in the competition offering realism that is not available in TV or computer games, with the use of pods and simulators that are virtually inaccessible at home, with games like House of the Dead and Time Crisis and several driving and flight simulators. At present, the existing arcade games consist of either-racing, fighting, sport or shoot' em' up games, with new genres such as dancing and karaoke games attracting girls as well. With the advancement in technology and game design, the consumers expect photo-realistic situations and backgrounds to play in. Computerized three-dimensional objects have produced the desired result up to an extent. With the introduction of new games almost everyday, old, classic arcade games may be forgotten by most but are still sought by old-school gamers as collectibles or memorabilia. Over the years, Virtual Reality has gone from a pipe dream to a very realistic possibility, taking realism in gaming to new heights; so the future of arcade gaming looks bright indeed.
